    Pros

    Closer commute to the facility

    Cons

    Employment discrimination practices - if you are not white, you are not the right fit for their organization!

    Advice to Management

    Stop discriminating against minorities when it come to management positions. Submitted resume with original name; they immediately emailed me saying I wasn't the right fit for the position. I then submitted the exact same resume with a caucasian name and received a response. Stop engaging bigot behavior, learn about diversity, culture and inclusion. Discrimination is against labor laws!

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    If you are not in the inner circle you will go nowhere.
    No one in the offices talks. Not a fun environment. If you are a favorite you will do just fine.

    Advice to Management

    Start with the top and get rid of people and start over.

    "Manager"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Menasha Packaging full-time

    Pros

    The hourly ranks are some of the best people I have worked with.

    Cons

    Corporate management can not be trusted. With the new President and his country club buddies in place they are driving great people away in record numbers.

    Advice to Management

    The individual that filled the plants up with low margin business and drove margins downs was made President and then he removed good people from the company because the plants were not performing.
    A company cannot save its way to prosperity, a plan would be nice and the plan the new President put together is lip service.
    Go figure, the share holders would not be happy if they knew how he treated people.
